Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARROW-341) [Python] Making libpyarrow available to third parties
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2016 06:05:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-341?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15724479#comment-15724479
] 

Uwe L. Korn commented on ARROW-341:
-----------------------------------

Another functionality that could be shared to other (non Cython) third-party libraries is
the conversion code of C++ to Python objects (i.e. {{arrow::Table}} -> {{pyarrow.Table}}).

At first glance this looked like something easy but it will possibly require that we move
the definition of the Python structs ({{pyarrow.Table}}) to the C++ code from Cython. This
would make a it a bit more hard to maintain.

One option is that we could move the Python glue into the C++ library and create a leaf lib
{{libarrow_python.so}}.
